Board Members McNair and Alford Drop Gavel for Final Time

Earlier this month, during the final Troup County School System (TCSS) Board of Education monthly meeting, both Alfred McNair and Ted Alford dropped the gavel for the final time. The two members are retiring at the end of December.

Mr. Ted Alford has been supporting District 4 for seven years. Before his tenure on the Board, he retired from TCSS with 39 years of experience as a teacher, coach, and principal of Berta Weathersbee Elementary. Mr. Alford served as Chairman of the Board for a number of years, and his steady hand of work with Troup County schools, students, parents, and community is one to be commended and duplicated.

Mr. Alfred McNair has served District 7 since 1988. This year marked his 30th year since he joined the board. He is a pharmacist by trade, but his calming demeanor brought a sense of comfort and reassurance to the Board and he is trusted by the people of Troup County as a long-standing Board Member.

We wish both men good luck in their retirement and many thanks for faithfully serving the TCSS students, staff, and community during their tenure!

Happy Holidays from Troup County School System!

Hogansville Students Receive Bikes for Christmas

Thanks to the Academy Sports & Outdoors Holiday Bike donation, 50 students at Hogansville Elementary were able to ride bikes with new helmets home for the holidays. The purpose of Academy’s annual bike donation is to provide local schools with an opportunity to reward children during the holidays with bikes and helmets for perfect attendance, academic performance, good behavior, and/or need.

Callaway High School Lunch Debts Paid

It certainly is 'seasons greetings' as Callaway High School (CHS) principal, Jonathan Laney, accepted a check from an anonymous donor for $1,410. The donation was given to pay outstanding cafeteria fees for CHS students.

The donor stated, "Paying it forward, God bless everyone!" CHS sends its heartfelt gratitude to the donor for his/her kindness during this holiday season.
